Remember To Get Your Third-Party Irrigation System Audits and Approval Letters!!
This is a reminder that you must provide the WELS Plans Reviewer a Third-Party Irrigation System Audit and an Approval Letter for his review and approval before he can give final approval to your permit. Please see WELS Sections 5.7 and 5.8 (6.5 and 6.6 in older version of the Ordinance). Please Note: The WELS Plans Reviewer must give final approval to your permit before you can obtain a final building inspection. The City reserves the right to conduct Landscape and Irrigation Inspections, separate from the third-party irrigation audit, for projects with WELS approval after January 1, 2019 (WELS Section 6.0), although the City may request inspections at any time regardless of the WELS approval date.
The services of a Certified Landscape Irrigation Auditor should be secured as soon as practical to insure a timely audit report. A list of certified auditors can be found HERE. A sample Approval Letter and Guidelines to complete the Letter are available on the website as well. A template for an Irrigation Audit Report, specific to the WELS, will be posted soon.
